I suppose this is the part where you all scold me for how naive I was to post any of my photos online without first defacing them with numerous ugly watermarks. Go ahead.
The bottom line is that I don't like watermarks either but have recently suffered several people/companies downloading my images and reposting them on other sites without permission, nor even the courtesy to give credit. I have personally contacted over 100 different websites and individuals to inform them of their copyright infringement and to please take down my picture ASAP.
The biggest kick in the face about this is that I would much rather just be able to post photos of my bacon dress, costumes and other works without these glaring terrible marks on them (really truly HATE watermarks) however the cruelty of human nature has firmly moved me to the dark side on this one. The only places you should be able to view my bacon dress are this DevianArt page, my personal Tumblr page and if GISHWHES themselves post/print it.
THE BACON DRESS PHOTOS (along with anything else I create/post) are 100% copyrighted and if you are not me you have absolutely no right to post them elsewhere.
The other news is that, partially in response to the barrage of terrible, awful comments I have been party to recently due to the Bacon Dress fiasco:
I no longer have the drive nor need to create a new costume in time for Motor City Comic Con this coming May 2013. There is still time to come up with something new, and I do love Cosplay. But right now I feel pretty beaten down and broken by the world as a whole; putting myself further on display just feels like I'm asking for more abuse and honestly I would much rather just have a nice time this year. I had so many wonderful Doctor Who costume ideas too!
